Should I Quit My Job?
If you could go back to school, would you study something different than you did?
- I'm happy with what I studied. It's interesting and I can find ways to apply it to my position.

How is your relationship with your boss?

- My boss is great! They do stress me out sometimes, though.
- My boss is fine, but I don't find myself relating to them or being interested in what they do.

- At best, they commiserate with me. At worst, they're my enemies.
Say you've been working on a really tough project and you're feeling stuck. How do your boss or coworkers help out?
- My boss would give me advice, while my coworkers would pitch in to help out.
- They'd leave me to figure it own on my own--or they're the ones causing the issue.

- In what little spare time I have, I've been networking with people at different companies. I've gotten some pretty good responses so far, actually.

Should I Quit My Job?
Quitting your job is a huge decision and not one that's easy to make. Several factors should go into whether you should quit your job, like your relationship with your manager and coworkers, your future at the company, whether you want a part-time or a full-time job, and whether better jobs are available. However, if the little voice in your head is telling you that your current job isn't a good fit, you may want to move on.
Your job makes up a significant portion of your life and is necessary for stability, health insurance, and income. Every employee has struggled with their job at one point and wanted to quit. However, quitting is a big deal and shouldn't be taken lightly. Even if you decide your current position is wrong for you, you may want to consider a wide range of alternatives and the underlying reason behind you wanting to leave your current job.
